normal. we've had 21 above normal days in october. the 26th of the month. the air quality, you know, we have wet air the wet molecules can grab some of that dust and dirt. so we did sneak into the moderate category for a few hours this afternoon. tomorrow we'll get rolling between 64 and 69 degrees as you leave the house any time between seven and nine. mid-70s at lunchtime. i think we'll have enough sunshine to propel us up to 80. not much wind and not much wind the way of cloud cover early. we'll have thin clouds continue to work their way through. but the thicker clouds are offshore. we've actually got two systems and this moisture coming up as well. so there's going to be a lot of available water. it's not nearly as wet of a system as what we saw on monday but i still like our chances for rain on friday. here is seymour. seymour's winds down to 125. that moisture coming up to the southwest and that's going to add more into the equation to

6:27 pm
i want us to heal our country and bring it together. we have to start getting the economy to work for everyone... not just those at the top. making the best education system from preschool through college. making it affordable, because that's, i think, the best way for us to get the future that our children and our grandchildren deserve. my vision of america is an america where everyone has a place. this is the america that i know and love. if we set those goals and we go together, there's nothing that america can't do. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. we've learned a lot about how joe heck works. follow the money. he called nevada's foreclosure crisis a "blip" and took almost $700,000 from wall street, including some of the same banks who caused the crisis. and then there's money he's taken from payday lenders who charge 521% interest.
6:28 pm
add it all up, and joe heck is working for corporate special interests. and that doesn't work for nevada. senate majority pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. jim dunlap: too many nevada police officers have been killedfor the content in the last few years. the truth is, we make it too easy for criminals and the dangerously mentally ill to buy guns. they get them at gun shows or online from strangers, no questions asked. so here's something we can do to honor the fallen: close the background check loophole. that will help prevent future cop killings. in states that have closed the loophole, nearly half as many police officers have been shot and killed in the line of duty. background checks save lives. v.o.: yes on question one. "she's a slob." "she ate like a pig." "i'd look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers..." donald trump calls women "bimbos", "dogs", and "fat pigs." but congressman crescent hardy said he'd support donald trump 100%. nevada, there's a better choice: ruben kihuen.
6:29 pm
ruben kihuen for nevada.
6:30 pm
